Group Think, Leftist liturgy, Sex With Animals

Filed under: Capitalism, marxism — Tags: — Jesusland @ 18:15

Yeah, these people are EXACTLY like the Tea Party, right Joe?

“You Can Have Sex With Animals”

These people are freaking weirdos.

These guys aren’t in church, but here’s more proof Liberalism is a religion.  Listen to the way they mindlessly parrot him.  The speaker  recites his dogma, and his Leftist drones repeat on faith, just like a liturgy.  Reminds me of church.  But at least in church we knew what the pastor/speaker was going to recite, and then we’d respond.  As members of that church we had already agreed beforehand on a statement of faith.  But these pod people just repeat after him, blindly, cult like, even when he’s just spouting puerile and obscene inanities.  What’s worse is the speaker had no doubt his “have sex with animals” comment would be a big hit with this group, and they seem to agree!  Blows my mind that once upon a time I would have thought it fun and cool to rub elbows with this secular progressive mob.

I don’t like to make fun of a group of people based on their fringe elements, but these people aren’t this group’s fringe, this is secular progressivism.  And what do these people ultimately WANT?  I still haven’t a clue!  Though I suspect communism.  I am open to correction if any of them would like to pipe in and set the record straight.

Collectivist Freaks, Geeks, Weirdos and Drones Silence Civil Rights Hero John Lewis

Sure Joe, the “Occupy” protests are just like the Tea Party.  Uh huh.

If they aren’t getting arrested for storming police lines, or defecating on cop cars, or vandalizing police property, or attacking the Air and Space museum, they’re pulling weird collectivist, New Age crap like this!  Watch the whole thing.  That is some bizarre shyte right there.   But what do the kooks WANT, you ask?  I still haven’t the slightest clue.  lol

Violent Communist agitators march on Wall Street

The police have arrested hundreds of violent communist agitators at the Wall Street protests.

What, they aren’t communists driven by a hatred for capitalism, nor violent, you say?  Well I have the photographic evidence, here

CAPITALISM DOESN'T WORK

and here

CAPITALISM IS ORGANIZED CRIME

to prove that they are.

Just as the Tea Party was primarily motivated by racism because the Liberal media found a few offensive placards to highlight for their evening broadcasts, these rallies are communist.  Not Liberal, nor socialist, nor Democrat, mind you, but COMMUNIST.  You may therefore disregard whatever they have to say about the Wall Street fat cats.  Moreover, they are racist.  Yes, RACIST!  In the clip below we provide hard proof of this racism as they violently drive a BLACK Democrat congressman, Charles Rangel, from the streets.  Libs are so right, this really is a racist country!  Take particular notice of how they have to remind themselves it is a “peaceful” rally lest the violence spiral out of control.

Pay no attention to the fact, however, that nobody (least of all themselves) knows what these Mac-using, latte sipping hippies are protesting about, or even what they want done.  Protesting “greed” and “Wall Street” are not a set of demands that can be negotiated with or bargained for.

Rebel without a clue.

Alleluya!  This is a bit of religious subversion the Christmas Nazis can’t shut down.  Wouldn’t want to cause offense to the secular progressive multicultis doing their Winter Solstice shopping, but if public property is off limits to us during the Christmas season, then private malls it shall be.  Sadly, it would seem the mall is all that remains of “public space” in America.

Liberalism: Ideology of Decline Double Header

We can count the many ways in which modern Liberalism (as in Leftism, not classical liberalism) is the ideology of civilizational decline, and here is just one more example.  The secular progressive/humanist/materialist worldview that our Euro friends have adopted makes them easy prey for their future Islamic masters.

French Protest “Austerity” Plan

(PARIS) — Diesel and jet fuel supplies were running low Saturday in parts of France as workers took to the streets for another nationwide protest against President Nicolas Sarkozy’s plan to raise the retirement age to 62 [from 60]. Fuel supplies were a prime concern as unions announced that all 12 fuel-producing refineries in France were on strike and many depots were being blocked by protesters. Police were called in Friday to force three crucial fuel depots to reopen, including one near the southern city of Marseille.
Saturday’s march from the Place de la Republique in Paris was the fifth in a full month of protests that have swept this nation of 64 million people, affecting trains, subways, airports, hospitals, schools and other facilities.  The Ecology Ministry said fuel stocks at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport — one of Europe’s key hubs — were good until at least Tuesday, but the statement left open the question of what happens after that.

“(These protests are) an attempt to say stop abusing the workers and citizens,” Christian Coste, head of the CGT Union at Total’s La Mede refinery, told Associated Press Television News on Saturday. “We are not here to bring France to its knees and create a shortage, we are here to make ourselves heard.”

Workers have been striking for five days straight at the La Mede refinery in southern France.  On the streets of Marseille, garbage was left uncollected for the fourth straight day and firefighters had to extinguish some rubbish piles set afire.  Sarkozy’s pension reforms — especially raising the retirement age from 60 to 62 — are seen by unions as an attack on their near-sacred social protections. The government says that is the only way to save the money-draining pension system and insists people must work longer because they are living longer.

“The French understand that those who are blocking this country are at the head of the government,” CFDT union leader Francois Chereque said on BFM-TV.  Yet even at 62, France would have one of the lowest retirement ages in Europe. In cities around France excluding Paris, some 340,000 protesters were out by midday, according to the Interior Ministry. Union figures have been consistently far higher than official counts.

A shocking abuse of human rights, I tell you!  Lazy bastards.  This is what Western civilization in decline looks like.  Their culture disintegrates beneath their feet as they protest for more “bennies”.  And not only lazy, but more stupid.  Literally.

Retiring Younger Makes You Stupid

Donna Agnew loves her job, which is a good thing, because the way the economy is gasping, the 64-year-old Boston art gallery owner says she may not be able to afford retirement for the foreseeable future.  She is hardly alone.  With 401(k)s looking more like 201(k)s these days, many baby boomers are putting off retirement to rebuild decimated nest eggs. But amid such uncertainty there may be hope: A number of studies suggest that staying mentally and socially active may help stave off dementia and other dreaded declines associated with aging.

One tantalizing British study, in particular, recently concluded that working beyond normal retirement age appears to keep dementia at bay. Probably the way things are going, I will never retire,’’ said Agnew, who has been working seven days a week in her ARTmosphere Gallery in the North End since laying off several workers earlier this year.

The British researchers scoured medical records of 382 men whose Alzheimer’s symptoms emerged around age 75. They found that, all other factors being equal, the symptoms were delayed about seven weeks for each extra year the men worked. “It is possible to affect onset of dementia by lifestyle choices later in life,’’ the study’s lead author, Michelle K. Lupton, a graduate student at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, said in a phone interview.

Lupton said that the group’s findings, published in May in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, shouldn’t be interpreted as a prescription to work years longer to avoid Alzheimer’s. Rather, she said, their conclusions add weight to the “use it or lose it’’ hypothesis of staying mentally engaged to slow the negative effects of aging.

Some scientists believe a trait called cognitive reserve may help explain why certain people are able to stay mentally sharper longer than others. The term applies to the brain’s resilience, its ability to cope with damage – such as the signature plaque that clogs the brain in Alzheimer’s – while still functioning normally.

Exposure throughout life to mentally challenging activities – such as pursuing an education, working at an engaging job, and volunteering – may contribute to building cognitive reserve, said Yaakov Stern, professor of clinical neuropsychology at Columbia University and a member of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Council.

Young Michael Moore speaks truth to Power, gets PWNED

Filed under: Capitalism, Liberalism, Uncategorized — Tags: — Jesusland @ 00:05

This one’s somewhat of an oddity.  Here a young Michael Moore pits his youthful idealism against the cold logic of the great Milton Friedman.  It’s no contest, really.  And yes, that really is Michael Moore before the Doritos got the best of him.  Watch it a couple of times and you’ll begin to recognize him.

The debate is an interesting time capsule of a time when the Left pretended to be worried about auto safety. Today Moore and his liberal friends want us all driving one of these deathtraps down the freeway amongst semi-trucks and all the big limos transporting environmentalists like Al Gore to Earth Day ceremonies.

White and Guilty

White and guilty.  Just how they want you.  If you’ve ever wondered why your racist white cracker self just doesn’t feel suitably horrified by your whiteness, there’s a school cult you can join and have that fixed right quick.  Just join the workshop!

‘Whiteness’ workshop helps expose your inner racist

The central theme of the course was that this twinned combination of capitalism and racism has produced a cult of “white privilege,” which permeates every aspect of our lives. “Canada is a white supremacist country, so I assume that I’m racist,” one of the students said matter-of-factly during our first session. “It’s not about not being racist. Because I know I am. It’s about becoming less racist.” At this, another student told the class: “I hate when people tell me they’re colour-blind. That is the most overt kind of racism. When people say ‘I don’t see your race,’ I know that’s wrong. To ignore race is to be more racist than to acknowledge race. I call it neo-racism.”

[…]

Neo-racism, huh?  So the only path to redemption is to confess your guilt?  Heads they win, tails you lose.  Sounds like the race industry is becoming desperate for real racism.

When the Catholic church used to do that it was called the Inquisition.  Deny your guilt and you’d be burnt at the stake for your heresy.   But confess your guilt, and your demise would be a quick and painless one.

Morgan Freeman has a better idea:

“I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.”

MORGAN FREEMAN JUST SOLVED RACISM IN AMERICA.

A Crude Awakening

Have you ever wondered what will happen when all the world’s oil supplies run out?  Peak Oil is fast approaching.  That is the moment when the amount of oil we are able to extract from the ground begins to decline, even as the supply for that oil continues to rise.  That effectively ends the era of cheap oil, and life as we know it begins to change; beginning with 1) economic shocks the likes of which make our current one seem like a piker because these depressions will be imposed by nature rather than by a speculative bubble; 2) global wars to secure that diminishing resource, followed by 3) drastic reductions in standards of living, and finally 4) massive die-offs of the world’s population as our industrial civilization slowly but inexorably grinds to a standstill.  Can we find an alternative resource to replace oil and avert this catastrophe?

Hydrogen is off the table as that technology is another 30-50 years away.  To replace fossil fuels with solar, we’d need a solar panel half the size of California.  To replace fossil fuels with nuclear, we’d have to build 10,000 new plants, and the world’s uranium supply would become exhausted in 10-15 years.  Biofuels?  You’re looking at mass starvation as arable land used to grow food is transferred to energy production.  And if we do discover a suitable alternative, the question is will that discovery come in time to avert catastrophe?  And just as importantly, will we have enough time to retool our entire civilization to that new energy source?  I don’t know.  My faith remains in the God of the Bible.  But frankly, the future looks like shyte from where I’m standing.  Yet as always, you be the judge.  I am more than happy to be debunked on this one.  I hope I’m wrong.  Unfortunately, the facts appear to be on my side.  Will your grandchildren or great-grandchildren ever ride on an airplane?  The answer might very well be no.

Oil Production to Peak in 2014, Scientists Predict

Predicting the end of oil has proven tricky and often controversial, but Kuwaiti scientists now say that global oil production will peak in 2014. Their work represents an updated version of the famous Hubbert model, which correctly predicted in 1956 that U.S. oil reserves would peak within 20 years. Many researchers have since tried using the model to predict when worldwide oil production might peak.

[…]

“Not one in a hundred people in our country have even an inkling of the problem we are facing.

“The world has now exceeded sustainable peak supply.”

“We are looking at multi-generational resource wars.”

Cap and Trade is Dead?

Obama has read the tea leaves and is wisely tossing Cap and Trade under the bus.  Yet another reason for his ravenous mob to turn on him:  the global energy tax is dead.

OBAMA RETREATS FROM GOAL OF CAP-TRADE BILL

NASHUA, N.H.—President Barack Obama said for the first time Tuesday that legislation that would require industries to pay for emissions of greenhouse gases may need to be separated from a more popular “green jobs” bill in the Senate, a maneuver that could kill what once had been one of the administration’s top policy priorities.

Answering a participant in a town-hall meeting in Nashua who asked about green jobs—those connected to renewable energy—and so-called cap-and-trade legislation, Mr. Obama said, “The only thing I would say about it is this: We may be able to separate these things out. And it’s possible that that’s where the Senate ends up.”

Until now, the Obama administration has refused to entertain in public the idea that lawmakers might have to split up the climate bill. The shift by the president is another sign that the White House is rethinking strategy on big first-year agenda items such as health care and climate legislation, after public dissatisfaction with its focus on those issues helped cost Democrats their filibuster-proof hold on the Senate last month.

Read the rest, here.  If the eco-mob is serious about green jobs, they will support Obama in this.  The energy tax they want to impose on our economy is a non-starter for the GOP, as it should be for anybody who understands what such a tax would mean for our economy.  And make no mistake, it’s not like the rest of the world, especially the Chinese, were going to honor any of the terms of such a global energy tax anyway.  They don’t have a green lobby to hold their feet to the fire the way we do.  Cheating would have been par for the course; and it would have been just another ankle weight on a U.S. economy already hard-pressed to compete with the sweatshops of the developing world.

Hitler Reacts to Citizens United vs Federal Elections Commission

He makes a good point; the notion that corporations are “people” and therefore have rights to free speech just as real human beings is patently absurd and is a disservice to our democracy, even though that’s been the constitutional standard for decades.

But the same absurdity is being applied to unions and PACs.  And if you outlaw speech for corporations but not unions and PACs, well, that’s absurd too.  Corporations have shareholders just as unions and PACs have members.  It would be an unequal application of the 1st Ammendment.   The only solution that doesn’t run afoul of the 1st Amendment is to silence everybody who isn’t a real human being– corporations, PACs, and unions– otherwise you’d be favoring one party over another.  But that’s never going to happen.  So how do we counter the unequal weight of corporations in the marketplace of free speech?  Well, I guess that’s what unions and PACs are for.  But the reality is, there is never going to be an equal voice for everybody in the free speech marketplace.  That’s a utopian ideal.  After all, do you have the same voice as your average Hollywood celebrity when they spout off ad nauseaum in support of their causes?  Of course not.  Nobody gives a rat’s @ss what you think, because you aren’t rich and famous.  Should they be banned from speaking on the grounds their voice has a greater weight in the marketplace of ideas than yours?  What about the corporation known as the NYTimes? Should their editorial pages be banned?  That would be the logical conclusion if we ban corporate speech on the grounds they have “more speech” than the rest of us.  Keep in mind also, that this does not affect the amount corporations are allowed to donate to candidates.  That remains unaffected by Citizens United.

The Weird Science of Global Warming

It’s almost like the science behind global warming was done by a couple of horny teenage boys for their high school science project.

Below, science!

WORLD MISLED OVER HIMALAYAN GLACIER MELTDOWN

A WARNING that climate change will melt most of the Himalayan glaciers by 2035 is likely to be retracted after a series of scientific blunders by the United Nations body that issued it.

Two years ago the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a benchmark report that was claimed to incorporate the latest and most detailed research into the impact of global warming. A central claim was the world’s glaciers were melting so fast that those in the Himalayas could vanish by 2035.

In the past few days the scientists behind the warning have admitted that it was based on a news story in the New Scientist, a popular science journal, published eight years before the IPCC’s 2007 report.

It has also emerged that the New Scientist report was itself based on a short telephone interview with Syed Hasnain, a little-known Indian scientist then based at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.

Hasnain has since admitted that the claim was “speculation” and was not supported by any formal research. If confirmed it would be one of the most serious failures yet seen in climate research. The IPCC was set up precisely to ensure that world leaders had the best possible scientific advice on climate change.

ROFLMAO! —> IPCC

What’s this?  The glaciers aren’t really melting you say?  The world may not be ending after all?  The catastrophic predictions were just speculations?  Why, this sounds like great news!  Right?  Then why the long faces, Warmists?  Aren’t you happy the world isn’t burning up and our glaciers aren’t melting?  Why the big sourpuss?  How come good news about the environment always makes you feel like you just got kicked in the gonads?  Why does it always make you feel so blue?  Hmmm?  Look into your hearts, warmists, and ask yourselves that.  Time to self-examine.  And when you find the answer then you’ll know what the real fuss is about when it comes to “global warming.” So much for all that “settled” science.

Move Your Money for Cripes Sakes

People all over the country are choosing to move their money out of bigger banks and into smaller, community-oriented financial institutions that generally avoided the reckless investments and schemes that helped cause the financial crisis.

Fueled by the personal initiatives of thousands, it’s a grassroots effort that has the potential to shift power in the financial system away from Wall Street and to Main Street.

Check out the video, read up on what inspired the idea, connect with others through Facebook and Twitter and then use the tools and links provided to find a community bank or credit union in your area.

Why You Should Move Your Money

Bill Maher doesn’t usually make a whole heck of a lot of sense.  But this sounds pretty smart to me.  In fact, he sounds unusually rational here.  He says, and I agree, this isn’t a conservative idea, nor a Liberal one.  It isn’t Red, nor Blue.  It’s not Left nor Right.  It’s populism at it’s best.  And CCHQ, like the Tea Party movement, believes in populism, and endorses everything Bill Maher says here.  Pass this on.

A Response to David Brooks’s “Educated Class”

In a prior post we fisked, columnist David Brooks’s laments that brilliant people like him don’t have more power, and how unfair it is that gap-toothed illiterates like you, gentle readers, don’t just give him all the power.  After all, he’s smarter than you, better educated, and you, well you’re a moron.  Below we have Thomas Sowell, a pretty smart guy who didn’t drop out of high school like the rest of you did address some of David Brooks’s concerns.

APOSTATES

Nobody is hated more than an apostate to the Faith.  Someone who turns their back on his old way of thinking and walks away.  Because nobody has a keener insight on the inner workings of the machine against which they have turned, and few are more effective spokespersons against it.  That is what makes an apostate so dangerous, and so hated.

If you’ve ever wondered why the Left singles out conservative women and minorities for such ferocious attack, it’s because they too are considered a type of apostate from the Liberal faith that claims to represent them.  Women and people of color of this type are feared and despised by the Left because they threaten the Left’s monopoloy on this demographic, without which they would cease to exist as a political force.  Without this solid monopoly, particularly of people of color, the Left goes the way of the Dodo.  So they guard it jealously.  As a person of color, and an ex-Liberal, I am the Left’s worst nightmare.  I am an apostate twice over.  Personally, I can’t tell you how delightful it is to be able to say the things on my mind without fear of some insipid white Liberal telling me what speech codes I’ve just violated or thought crimes I’ve committed.  Because as a “person of color,” I am not afflicted by that disease known as “white guilt.”  It’s why the Left hates folks like me so much.  They can’t control me because I am immune to the virus of white guilt that so many of you are infected with–that mental virus they use to control you.

David Horowitz, a former communist, and Pat Caddell, whom I still consider an old school Democrat, are also despised by the far Left as apostates; here spilling the beans on the inside workings of the machine:

The Advent Conspiracy

Our culture and heritage is under assault from the secular progressive Left.  That is beyond dispute.  But as defenders of our judeochristian heritage, we must also recognize that–in particular with respect to some of our religious traditions–the assault is double pronged.  It is coming at us from two directions, and not only are we unaware of it, but we are active participants.

A movement like the Advent Conspiracy is countercultural on two fronts – not just fighting the secular idea that Christmas is a month-long shopping and decorating ritual, but the powerful conservative notion that the holiday requires acknowledgement from the nation’s retailers to be truly meaningful. It’s not easy, says one youth pastor whose church is part of the Advent Conspiracy. “When you start jacking with people’s idea of what Christmas is and you start to go against this $450 billion machine of materialism and consumerism, it really messes with people,” he explains. “It takes a lot of patience to say there’s a different way – Christmas doesn’t have to be like this.”

The commercialization of Christmas is not our friend. Just as a reminder with the coming approach of Christmas, gentle readers, just what the season is really about.  Otherwise we are defending nothing but an empty husk.

Capitalism is Ammoral

No, not immoral. Capitalism, like money, like a hammer or a car, is ammoral. It has no morality, neither good, nor bad.  It’s a tool, nothing more.  And like any tool, it can be used for good, or not so much good.

Human beings are by nature driven primarily by self-interest.  Even greed.  That’s a fact of life.  An immutable rule.  If this were not the case, our holy scriptures and religious texts would not preoccupy themselves so much with condemning greed, and teaching selflessness.  We struggle to overcome greed and self-interest, but it will always be part of our genetic code.

And although capitalism has no morality, it works.  And it works precisely because it harnesses our inherent self-interest and greed, and produces a benefit out of it.  A great benefit.  As in ‘prosperity the likes of which has never been seen in human history’ benefit.  And that is certainly true in the case of our healthcare system.

I have been reluctant to insert myself into this debate because I see the pros and cons to both arguments, and I’m too ignorant on the specifics.  I always tilt towards capitalism and away from statism, but I am also concerned about the uninsured.  Yet Jon Stossel is just too good to ignore here.  He’s always amazing.

Now, as good judeo-christians, we are ever mindful of those who go without.  And we do want to help cover those currently without healthcare.  But is the DESTRUCTION of our current healthcare system the way to do it?  Or does it call for REFORM.  There is a difference.
